CD Booklet

Hi everyone,
I am currnently building a 12pg CD booklet project and would like to use InDesign. I noticed it has a CD booklet template...

My question is, do I need to compensate for "printers spread" and the order in which I need the pages to appear (ie in corresponding song order) or can I just drop my info/images onto each number page and assume it will be printed in correct order? Thanks!

RE: CD Booklet

compensate for "printers spread" is worded like you meant 'creep'.  Is that what you meant?  Compensate is a pale term to address the difference between reader's and printer's spreads.  

InDesign works strictly with reader's spreads.  You need a plug-in or script to output printer's spreads (like InBooklet from alap.com).  For something simple like a CD booklet, I would suggest a little planning and laying out your design in a printer's spread.

You should ask about page ordering (imposition) from your printer.
