The birthplace of the art of letterpress printmaking, Hatch Show Print embraces modern design while continuing the traditional technique it's employed since 1879. The company made a name for itself in the 19th century by printing bills for show business. Stop by the gallery to view some of Hatch's original prints, as well as loaned prints from other notable companies. A workshop called Space for Design teaches participants the art of printmaking. You can book a tour that reveals the history of the craft. Use the shop's carved wood and other blocks to make your own print to take home.

  • A Nashville staple. It's where they make all of the event and music posters... and have for years. You can tour the printing facility, or just look thru the posters they have for same (relatively cheap). Fun to look thru!
  • One of my favorite parts of Nashville was the Hatch Show. Any design/music/history buffs will love this place. Definitely do the tour, you will get a closer look at all the printing and you'll get to print your own poster.
  • Place is cool and historic, but they should really consider offering to frame the prints you buy for an extra cost. They're odd shapes, so it's difficult and expensive to frame them yourself.
  • Strongly recommended taking the tour - you create your own print to keep at the end and you get a deeper understanding of the history of Hatch, poster printing, and music!
  • Relocated from its original location, but still a good tour and a great insiders look at a legendary and still busy print shop.
