How To Create a Double-page Spread In InDesign
The best way to create a double-page spread in InDesign is to ensure that the facing pages option is checked. The facing pages option should be checked when you are exporting from your graphics program.
If the program you are using to set up the spread isn’t InDesign, then you don’t need to use any bleed in the centre. Just use the standard ⅛” bleed on the outer edges of the page. The bleed has to be included just like you will set up a file cover. InDesign is still the best software for creating a double-page spread.
What are Single Pages in InDesign?
Use the Single Page layout if each page will be read separately. Each page will be printed flat on either one or both sides of the paper. The pages can be bound loosely or with slip-in inserts, metal rings, spiral, wire, comb threads, screws, etc.
Printed pieces that use the Single Page include letters, flyers, ads, Menus, and Posters.
What are Facing Pages in InDesign?
Spread-based documents are Facing Pages, and these spread pages are viewed together so that each page faces the other. You see, a spread consists of two-page pairs of a left and right page. This is one of the reasons why four pages are the minimum number of pages in a spread-based print piece.
Examples of pieces that use the facing page layout are Menus, Newsletters, Announcements, Programs, booklets, notecards, Etc.
