I want to set page borders but is getting confused between various answers and tutorials.

All I want is simple, double-lined page borders (with black color) for my page. I am also getting confused about the very basic packages you require with miktex for the purpose.

I think that tikz is something you require?

I am beginner to latex and going through various tutorials for title-page designing. I have designed the title page but this border thing is very confusing.

Very basic method for border insertion in the title page, or any other pages?

  • A simple "remember picture, overlay" TikZ picture is ok to draw not only that. – user156344 Dec 25 '18 at 9:12

    Welcome to TeX.SX. What titlepage design do you have in mind? – Johannes_B Dec 25 '18 at 9:19

A simple way is use fancybox and minipage:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fancybox}
\begin{document}
\begin{titlepage}
\noindent\doublebox{\begin{minipage}[c]%
[\dimexpr\textheight-2\fboxsep-7.5\fboxrule-1pt][c]
{\dimexpr\textwidth-2\fboxsep-7.5\fboxrule-1pt}%
\centering
\leavevmode\vfill
\huge Your title page here
\vfill\leavevmode
\end{minipage}}
\end{titlepage}
\end{document}
