Try this line in your command for a snow-white background:

plotregion(fcolor(white)) graphregion(fcolor(white))


Here is an example of a command that I might use:

*********************************************************
graph bar (asis) NCDSab BCSab NCDSinc BCSinc if sex==`sex',
by(level,
title("Figure 1" "Marginal Effect of Cognitive Ability and Log Family"
"Income on Final Schooling Attainment")
subtitle("``sex'' from NCDS and BCS, Age 10-11")
note("Based on ordered probit estimates of the probability of achieving a
given level of schooling. Marginal"
"effects are calculated controlling for family and socio-economic
characteristics"
"Source: Galindo-Rueda and Vignoles (2003).", span size(small) ))
subtitle(, pos(12) ring(1) prefix nobexpand nobox span size(small))
ytitle(Probability)
legend(cols(2) size(small) symxsize(2) symysize(3) span )
lintensity(500) blabel(bar, size(vsmall) format(%9.3f))
plotregion(fcolor(white)) graphregion(fcolor(white))
;
