The BPS Foundation and Century High School partnered with Publishing Concepts Incorporated to develop the Oral History Project. The following letter/email was sent to any/all alumni who purchased the printed copy of the publication regarding a delay in the publishing. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.  For any additional questions regarding these orders and/or products, please reach out to the number listed below.

First, let me thank you for your support of the Century High School Oral History Project. We are extraordinarily proud of this endeavor and are grateful that Century High School has trusted us with this important project. I’d like to sincerely apologize for your wait in receiving your hardbound publication. As you may be aware, there is a nationwide paper shortage that has severely affected our nation’s printers and their ability to produce publications, especially those with unique paper sizes and large runs. This paper shortage is unlike anything I’ve seen in my 30-plus years in this business (and one I hope to never see again).

We intend to ship your publication out to you before the end of July 2023.

For those who purchased the digital version, you will be receiving an email in the coming weeks with the subject “Your Century High School Digital Publication is Ready.” The link in that email gives you immediate access to all the stories you will find in the hardbound book, as well as audio of interviews and additional stories not found in the hardbound.

We here at PCI greatly appreciate your understanding and patience. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly to answer your questions you may have. Our Client Experience team can be reached at 1-800-982-1590 or by email at .
