Any thoughts on why this is happening?
This is my screen:
And this is a photo of my print out:
That's interesting... Is it repeatable with different drawings?
As a workaround, have you tried saving the drawing as a pdf and printing the pdf?
I've seen our kyocera printer do the same thing with outputting reports from a different software but never seen this on a solidworks drawing.
We do save pdfs for various reasons, and the pdf (thank goodness) comes out fine.
I have seen it on other drawings... and it seems to happen when I have typed a tolerance into at least one of the dimensions.

We always save_as to PDF for our SWx drawings, and print those. I've had issues with lineweights, line styles, special characters, and displaced lines when printing directly from SWx, depending on printer, printer driver, and certified graphics card drivers. Save_As PDF always works right, and also makes a time stamped release so that unintended changes or errors do not alter the release.
Note: Save_As PDF is not same as Print to PDF. I use Save_As for consistently good results.
Printer don't recognize the +/-.
Try use different driver. There could be PS, PCL5, PCL6 or other. See which one works.
Also how big is the drawing? Does the printer has enough memory.
We had funny prints with a HP that don't have enough memory.
I'd agree with Frederick that trying another printer driver would be a good idea. I'd start with a PS (post script) driver and go from there.
