where do you get black boarders?

I am getting a new room (yay!) and am so excited to decorate it. Last year I had this awful room and no supplies (not even enough chairs!). This year I plan on setting my room up but am wondering about the black boarders the sisters use. I will be teaching K and my shelves are all blue and the tables primary colors. I am making seat pockets out of a dark blue. Do you think black would work with primary colors and in a K room? If not what?

I ordered mine through my school budget money. I got them in School Speciality catalogue. I've seen them in teaching catalogues like Really Good Stuff.
Teacher stores would have them as well.
Having said that, you don't have to have black borders. The idea is to minimize distraction. They recommend doing that by choosing one color for your background and another color for the border. For example, you could do red for the background and blue borders.

I just bought some today at Lakeshore. I am planning on using light blue and green for the background and black for the borders. Some of my black borders are solid and some have some designs on them. It all coordinates and is very calm looking. Good luck!

I ordered my black border through school funds. I also found a teal striped plastic table cloth at Walmart for 1.00 and am using that for my background color. I'm so excited!

Some stores have a small section dedicated to teacher/classroom supplies. I was surprised to find black borders there for about $3.50 a pkg.

I've seen black borders at all the teacher stores near me. I'm using black boards with black and white dot border, as that will really allow what's on the boards to "pop" (and it will match all my primary-color stuff).
