The document size should represent the final trim size of the document. Trim size includes the desired finished page size with bleed added that may be trimmed away, if this is required. The page size will be used to automatically set trim and registration marks.
Be aware of folding panels. Do your work at 100% size of the printed piece and allow for proper margining where you want it to fold.
If creating a book, insert blank pages where they would appear in the finished book to keep all ODD numbered pages as right-hand pages and EVEN numbered pages as left-hand pages in the book. The book will be bound in the center. You will require more margin on the inside of each page where they will be bound.
