Do we account for bleed for a 2 page spread in a book?

Alisa Sep 20, 2018 12:29PM EDT

Hi I want to print a book that includes a 2 page spread somewhere.

I have some really crude examples, but I hope they are clear.

When the reader opens the book, I want them to see this, minus the bleed border

But I know that for every page, we need to account for bleed, so do I need to split my page in half like this:

So when I send in the PDF, and I have to send in single pages, I need to account for the bleed like this, right?

Or if I choose saddlestich binding instead of Perfect Binding, would it be ok to send it in without bleed in the middle?

We do not accept 2 page spreads. You must submit your file in single page reader format with pages in numerical order. We will set up in booklet form. Your third image is how your pages should look. We will remove the bleed from the inside edges of each page.

Thank you
