Anyone have an idea why the printer would print something different than what Cura shows should be printing? Inside the letters, logo, and numbers are all missing

first layer Cura

Did you check layer view? This would at least have you find out the issue before actual printing.

But I'm not sure there is an issue here. Is it not just that its doing the fill area first and then the infil in the letters?

yes, the screenshot is the layer view in Cura. The problem is that it does not print the insides of the letters and numbers on the first layer. It doesn't start till the second layer and that gives it a weak bond to the build plate.
