Text banner is not correct in Preview

I have a design with a banner were I have text on a path “- Established -” inside the decorative banner.
In preview, everything looks correct but when printed, the decorative banner is correct but I am missubg 2 characters on the right of the string.
What am I doing wrong?

NBotice that on the right I am missing the O. The banner is the correct size so it looks like the text is stretched

PS. Converted it to a path and it came out correct but is this something that you should normally do?
