Oh, very bad news. :-(

I fear this is not possible. It is a digital print shop.

And thats hard work. I'll have to ask a friend of mine to do the job
with Xpress. Very bad news. I was so proud of my work and want to show
him what is possible with Open Source. 

If I do the job anyway I will provide the crop-mark-file so that it can be
included into the sample area of scribus. I think a lot of people will
need that. 

I hope that "Bleed" will be implemented soon, because it is really vital.
