Designing Email Forms

I want to make and attractive email form where the boxes arent just a solid line, or a beveled border.

I understand how all the email form code works, but I cant find a tutorial showing how to make it attractive.

I have seen this on another site before, and the only way I can think to do this is to make a photoshop image and then create hotspots over the boxes, but im not sure this would work correctly. Can someone please tell me how to make a customized form that a user can fill out and click a send button which will email the info to me?
