# Where can I find examples of decorated borders/margins?

Are there any readily available examples of decorated borders/margins? I am trying to have some decore running along the edges of page, e.g. Gargoyles/Motif/Some type of mathematical curve/whatever.

Just need some examples to get started and have a choice to pick from.

Perhaps @Martin Scharrer's answer over here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/31135/… Might be of some interest as well. –  Roelof Spijker Oct 17 '11 at 11:32
CTAN offers a list of packages associated with the keyword: boxed text, frames: ctan.org/keyword/boxed –  knut Apr 9 '12 at 20:14

You could take a look to niceframe and umrand (Examples see below)

umrand: in http://mirrors.ctan.org/macros/generic/umrand/umrand12.zip is a dvi-file with examples. See below (It's the German description, but it contains a lot of examples).

niceframe:

\documentclass[12pt]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{niceframe}
\usepackage{swrule}% englische Linien
% ----------------------------------------------------------------
\begin{document}

\section{niceframe}

\subsection{niceframe}
\niceframe{\blindtext}

\subsection{artdecoframe}
\artdecoframe{\blindtext}

\subsection{\curlyframe}
\curlyframe{\blindtext}

~\swrule{0.6\textwidth}{1pt}~

\end{document}

There's a new CTAN Package: ghab The package defines a command \darghab that will typeset its argument in a box with a decorated frame. The width of the box may be set using an optional argument. mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/ghab ctan.org/pkg/ghab –  knut Oct 26 '11 at 19:39
