Custom Wallpaper Borders Use Your Own Photos
A woman in Indiana makes custom wallpaper borders using photographs that you supply. It's not cheap, but she says the rooms where it's used attract a lot of attention.
  Amy Gerber of Bluffton, Ind. started the border business out of her home as a spin-off of her job as a professional photographer.
  Gerber offers custom-made borders in a choice of nine styles. Customers visiting her website simply choose the style and color they like and fill out an order form, which contains instructions on either uploading or mailing digital files of the desired photos (or other types of images).
  She prints her borders using archival inks and says they resist fading for up to 75 years.
  "These borders can be easily applied using normal wallpaper paste," she says.
  Gerber charges a one-time setup fee per order which varies from $25 to $39, depending on the number of photos to be repeated in the border pattern.
  Her borders come in 12-ft. rolls of either 6, 8 or 10-in. widths. They cost $40.50, $54 or $67.50, respectively.
  Orders take approximately 4 to 6 weeks for delivery. Shipping charges vary according to the size of order.
