Did you also check image settings/Stroke border? Sorry if that is too obvious.

I had that turned off... It's a solid, faint grey tone outside of the image extending to the border. I figure it must be in LR since it doesn't do this in PS...

Where are you getting this grey area? In Lightroom? Or on the print itself?

for example, on an 8.5x11 sheet and the image is say 4x5 centered, the gray tone fills in all the open area out to the border... its a 3880, i've been using it quite frequently and this kinda happened... could it be a profile problem or example?

You've not got something like a drop shadow enabled in the print preview, have you? Printer manages colours?

I wonder if it is "scum dot" caused by printing with a  Version 4 ICC profile instead of a Version 2 profile?

You know, Tim, a picture is worth a thousand words. (Maybe more with inflation...)

Last idea : no ID plate? (last time I tried, those were nor color-managed, or at least not the same way as the image ie wrongly).

Are you soft proofing?
If so, right click on the gray border and check your paper white setting.
