Good suggestion. I did save it as PDF and it is ok. I thought I had to bring
it through Distiller in order to send it to LSI. I will look into Distiller
to see if I have something set wrong. If you have any suggestions of what to
look for I really would appreciate it.

Thanks for your suggestion

When you view the pdf as created by Scribus and before manipulaton 
in Distiller, is the bleed OK?

If so, something is set wrong in Distiller.  Perhaps you could skip 
the Distiller step altogether.
