    Ctrl + A
    Select>Modify>Contract
    Edit>Stroke>....

    I won't get into making it an action for you, but F1 would work wonders

      Or just use your rectangular marque tool, then edit, stroke.

        While using the rectangular marquee to draw a selection would work, it can be pretty imprecise unless you drag guides and set the snap to guides settings beforehand.

        Since I'm an action hack, I mucked around a bit and figured out a couple different ways to do this. Each provides options for stroke width. The stroke color can be adjusted after the action completes.

        It's odd, but if you the the CTRL+A, Select > Modify > Contract isn't available. I didn't know that. The Border command is available and I was able to make use of that.

        ~~~~~~~~
        Update:

        Original action set replaced. New actions added:
        * One that places the border 1% away from each edge
        * One that will expand the canvas 10% at the bottom and allow one to enter custom text.

          All the hours of search on the internet and you all helped me within a few minutes. All that i find on the internet are the wooden frames .

          Thanks you all, i'm very gracefull and a special thanks goes to Danny for making an action of it .

          Only just one thing, the action is great, but i'm still missing the border and signature .

          Hope to here more from you all and help me out.

          Ohh, and one more thing, Danny could you please change the action that the stroke is not 2% but 1%.

            Once you've got the stroked border, activate the Background layer, make sure your background colour is set to White, and do Image -> Canvas Size with appropriate settings.

            If you want to add text then use the Text tool...

              We aim to please...

              Action set updated (see my post above). New:
              * 1% action added
              * An action that extends the canvas so custom text can be added.

              Important: The 2nd action may fail if played under PS6; it will work for sure under PS7 and above. I might be able to make it PS6 compatible if necessary.
