Default How do I make 2 page borders on one page?

I'm using Word 2003. I would like to have two different color page borders
on one page. I've tried one color which works, but when I go to make the
second page border on the same page in a different color it just goes on top
of the first one. I set the page border for the first color at 13 and the
second page border with a different color at 24. Can't get two borders to
show up. Can anyone help me with this? thanks.

Thumbs up Answer: How do I make 2 page borders on one page?

Here's how you can create two different colored page borders on one page in Word 2003:
  1. Open your Word document and go to the page where you want to add the borders.
  2. Click on the "Format" menu and select "Borders and Shading".
  3. In the "Borders and Shading" window, select the "Page Border" tab.
  4. Under "Setting", choose the type of border you want for your first color and set the width to 13.
  5. Under "Color", select the color you want for your first border.
  6. Click on the "OK" button to apply the first border to your page.
  7. Now, go back to the "Borders and Shading" window and select the "Page Border" tab again.
  8. Under "Setting", choose the type of border you want for your second color and set the width to 24.
  9. Under "Color", select the color you want for your second border.
  10. Click on the "OK" button to apply the second border to your page.

You should now have two different colored borders on your page, one with a width of 13 and the other with a width of 24. If you want to adjust the placement of the borders, you can do so by selecting the "Options" button in the "Borders and Shading" window and adjusting the margin settings.

Word can't put two different page borders on the same page. Trying to
apply a second one will always replace the first one.

But you can fake it... Apply the first page border. Then open the
header pane, choose Insert Text Box, and draw a text box aroundt he
whole page. Then click Format Text Box and make it No Fill and the
line color and thickness you want. You won't be able to get the
assortment of fancy borders that the page border dialog offers, but if
all you want is a colored line it's ok.

You may need to adjust the positions of the text box edges so they'll
be in the printable area, which depends on your printer.

Instead of a text box you can also use a rectangle from the Drawing toolbar.
But whichever you use, you need to anchor it to the header (if you want it
to repeat on every page) and format it as Behind Text so that you can type
normally in the document.
