    Graphic borders (not css borders) using images

    I was wondering if you guys knew any techniques for getting cool borders using graphic images and not the normal css borders which allow no personallity.

    Thanks

    There's not a whole lot to it besides just hunkering down in Photoshop or Illustrator (or the like) and making a box. You could probably do a Google search and find some pre-made boxes.

    Once you've got that done, assuming you want a fixed-width box that will lengthen as it fills with more content, slice your image into three pieces: a top cap, a sliver for the middle to be repeated vertically, and a bottom cap.

    Check out this page to see how it's done.

    Here are a ton of examples, using images, that you would just need to change the images.

    That's exactly what I needed. I have photoshop so I can create my own boxes like that. I think I'll use the sliver body pic mostly and keep my small tables solid pics. Thanks so much guys.
