Sadly, he is no longer with us to ask how he added the border. I think it should be possible using either Gimp or Inkscape image editors.

OK, I'm not absolutely sure how Jeff engraved it, but I assume he just used the Analog/PWM code. The Dot Pix Laser option was added to PEP after the image was engraved, and while it is similar to engraving with a half-tone method, it is not exactly the same. It has features to dwell the burning of pixels to simulate a half-tone process.
