I am printing HTML reports that generate into PDF's using DOMPDF.  I want to use a really thin border in the reports.  Is it ok to use border: 0.1mm solid color.. or is there a better standard to go by?

Any other tips for printing nice looking pdfs?

Thanks in advance
Nick

0.1mm has been what I have used for years.

Are you asking about formatting or quality?

Here we go, have attached the brief template of what I am using.  I had to remove all the PHP but it still seems to be rendering fine.  The borders don't seem to be pulling through though, but you get the gist.

Have increased the points!
Thanks so much for taking this time!

It looks great.  I would only suggest a few things!  The "To:"  Just get rid of it. Make the "Company Name" green just like the rest of the header-type text.  Reduce the overall width so that the page width is 5" wide.  I think it is a bit stretched.

Send me a "screenshot" of this on your computer.  I think a lot is getting lost with the code being altered.
