Creating a check registery with large print. The facing size is 10"w x 5.5", the page size 10"s x 11". Since the page size will be 10" x 11", is the print size and then cut in half and sprial bound, therefore I will need a trim mark on the edge of the center of the page and I am stumped. 

 

See attachments, any support is appreciated. 

 

Thank you

As simple as this layout is, it's a layout, and should be designed in InDesign using spreads (facing pages) as well as the Table feature. (Right now none of your type is aligning across the page. With InDesign Tables, this would be easier to control.)
Set up your document as Facing Pages (left and right pages) with the view rotated 90° clockwise under the options menu of the Pages panel (Options menu > Page Attributes > Rotate Spread View.)

In the Print dialog, crop marks will give you exactly what your looking for.

If you did not find a solution, manually add trim lines at the center in the bleed area (you may want to make tha a little  larger in the Document Setup) and use the document bleed settings when saving the file.

Typically your job would be set up as two separate pages and imposed on a larger sheet.
