The fact that it's not on screen would lead me to check the printer and
driver. If you're using PostScript, check that it's the right PS driver for
your printer. Try printing to another printer, if possible. Try PDF'ing and
see if the box is still there. Try different types of graphics (BMPs and
EPSs would be a good range) and see if they all have the suspect border.
