    Nobody can tell without


    a) seeing the artwork/ screenshots

    b) knowing something about your system

    c) knowing what version of AI

    d) knowing your PDF settings

    What you see as a white background is just the artboard in AI. If you want a colored background you will have to make a rectangle with the appropriate fill color and send it to the back of the lowest layer.
