Borderless prints much darker

My document prints fine from Illustrator with the paper setting as U.S. Letter but it clips the bottom of the image.  So I select "borderless 8.5 x 11" and it no longer clips the image but it prints WAY darker, from golden do a dark gray brown.  Please help!  Thank you!

    Some printing colour issues are caused by an overly helpful printer driver setting causing a inappropriate colour management at printer level. I may be conceivable that such a setting is invoked when you print borderless, so it may be worth having a look at that (im)possibility.

    You might of inadvertantly switched to a different paper type when you went to borderless.  Double check the paper type.
