Why can I only print and export a board and a card but not a list?
Am I just missing something here? And is there a reason why exporting is only available as a JSON file?

Printing lists has not been a highly requested feature and would require a bit of work, whereas boards and cards are already well-formatted for printing. It's hard to prioritize them over features like copying cards.
JSON is the native data format for Trello, and thus is the easiest to implement. Other formats require munging and converting and will take some time, though the team plans to implement others formats in the future.
This tool is useful for printing both boards and lists.
Before I found the Trello print feature on the Board menu, I simply copied and pasted into a Word doc. Yes, this is a bit tedious but it does allow me to set the formatting up to my preferences which are a bit cleaner than the Trello option. And, I was able to copy and paste checklist from the back of cards under each heading (again, to my prefs). These are options that it would be great for Trello to offer, but until then I'm glad I have a way to make it work.
