issues, for the quarterly magazine I produce.  The first was done with
Scribus and the latest, the February 2011, issue was done with
1.3.9/1.4.0.  I updated half way through the production of the second issue.

My covers are full page color images outside and inside.  I used the bleed
script with for the first and the Pre-Press pdf export dialog
options for the last issue.  The results worked out fine.  Because the
magazine is relatively thin, we use staple stitch binding.  Therefore, I use
bleeds on only the outside edges and none on the binding edges of the four
pages I layout for the cover.

I'm told some digital printers do not require bleeds but since we are using
an offset method of printing, bleeds are necessary.
