    If I were to add a border (I generally don't) these are the steps I'd follow:
    - Duplicate image layer
    - extend canvas size (depending on size of image to begin with)
    - fill the background layer with either white or black depending on what looks better
    - add a stroke to the duplicate image layer (set it to "Inside" so you den't the ugly roundish corners)

    As for the signature, I made a new document and drew my signature using my graphics tablet (you could use a mouse too) and then saved it as a brush so that I can add it to any of my images without having to draw it every time.
