What is Bleeding
If you’re new to the world of print, then you may not understand what full bleed printing is. To prevent your printed product from having unsightly white lines around the border, you must set your document up with bleeds. Bleed refers to an extra 3mm of image or background color that extends beyond the trim area of your printing piece. The project is printed on an oversized sheet that is then cut down to size with the appearance that the image is “bleeding” off the edge of the paper. Different products may need different sizes of bleed.

Booklets with Bleed
Setting up bleeding on the booklets is a little different then the other printing products. It's very important if your booklet design contains images across two pages.
You need to create every page as a page but not a spread as a page with 4 side bleed.
Drag two pages as a spread for example page 2 and page 3, page 4 and page 5...Last page-2, Last page-1. This is physical pages but not page numbers. Leave the first page and the last page alone. Then start create your artwork.
