Hello everyone.  I am new to InDesign (just last month, but used adobe Pagemaker decades ago). I do not know how to bleed pages - do I need to print in bigger pages than my letter-size paper? also, I don't know how to print in spread pages. I hope you can help me so our annual report will come out beautiful.  Appreciate your big help. Thank you so much!

Here’s a Document Setup guide—Page Size is the document’s final trim size. When you Print or Export to PDF you can choose whether to include the Bleed and Slug areas:

"I don't know how to print in spread pages"

If you are talking about imposed Printer's Spreads, unless you are printing them yourself on your own office printer, you don't want to do that. If you are sending files to a Printer, they want the files as individual pages when you export a PDF for them.

However, if you wanted to print Reader's Spreads for your own review purposes, you can do so in the Print dialog.
