Sure, I'll attach a version with the background gray only. Just tried it 
out, the resulting PDF shows the white edges in the gray box. The one at 
lower left is a bit covered by the red strip, but still visible.

Maybe it's a matter of gray color on my screen only when shown as a PDF, 
and will not print like this? But how should I know?
