I'd like to add a simple, black, one-pixel border around a Google Doc (regular word processing doc) for a flier I'm writing. What is the easiest way to do this? And are there options for adding other kinds of borders? I didn't find anything great in the Docs user-submitted template collection, and I hear that it's closing down soon anyway.

To add a border around your Google Doc use the "Insert Table" with the 1x1 option. Put your content inside and change the format of the table line as you wish.

If you want the borders to be closer to the margin go to File -> Page Setup... and edit the margins.
