I'm afraid, you'll have to strip the properties before printing.
cf.:   substring-no-properties

(defun sexp-remove-string-properties (sexp)
   (cond
      ((stringp sexp) (substring-no-properties sexp))
      ((atom sexp) sexp)
      (t (cons (sexp-remove-string-properties (car sexp))
               (sexp-remove-string-properties (cdr sexp))))))

(prin1-to-string
  (sexp-remove-string-properties    
    '(:category "tmp2" :title (#("C2 " 0 3 (:parent nil))))))
--> "(:category \"tmp2\" :title (\"C2 \"))"
