Both answers help quite a bit, thanks. I am now doing the page spread as you mentioned in Scribus, and everything seems to look pretty good in the print preview.

Now that I have all these spreads, my next question is:

How do I re-arrange the individual pages from the spreads into a PDF that will print the pages in magazine form? I tinkered around with the Save To PDF, but can only save 1 spread at a time. Ideally, I'd like to save 2 spreads to a PDF (front and back), on the sheet of paper.

Explanation of why I'm trying to do this:

I plan on printing 50 to 100 magazines per print run, and I would like the PDF's be separated by sheets, so I can do 50 at a time instead of printing the entire magazine one by one (I hope that makes sense). I'd have each sheet in it's own pile, then I'll put them together.
