I see, my workflow is leaving the bleed in my layout soft. outside the final 
size. For example if my final destination is a 8.5x11, I will create a 8.5x11 
and leave the desired bleeding outside the page. Then when I send it to 
printer, he will take the file, create the correct signature and add the 
print marks within his imposition software. To my understanding, this is how 
it's done.
