In Signlab, have a look at the view menu, there is an option there to "Show Line Style" (Show thick or hairlines). Is it checked for you?

There is a chance , very likely, that the border is a thickline.
By default , Signlab strips out thicklines as we cant tell the knife to be eg 0.5 inches wide.

When you import, there is a checkbox in the lower left corner called Thick Lines
Make sure there is a checkmark in there.
This will let you import the thick line and let you print it.
But you then will get a warning if you try to cut it.

We cannot tell the cutter to change the width of the blade.
