Hatch Show Print, Nashville

4.4
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.

  • We took this tour as part of our Total Access Passes. It isn't really a tour of the shop - you just stand on the side while they show you different letters and machines and posters - not much differen...  more »

  • We took the tour and had a blast. Very informative. This is a great thing to do while downtown.
  • The art is super cool. But....in hindsight, I wouldn't pay the money for tour again. It was a lot of standing and listening. I was also a bit disappointed in the number of reproductions available for sale. But still a neat piece of Nashville history.
  • Really cool spot to see especially after visiting the Ryman Auditorium (think Grand Ole Opry) and seeing all of their signed prints there for seemingly every big artist from the past 60 years imaginable. Really cool view of how they make the prints, which they have kept the same authentic method. Great spot for a unique souvenir.
  • The shop is in every guide and I expected something emblematic. I was kind of disappointed not by the shop but by the style of the prints, just not my type. I did not go for the guided tour but it seemed quite interesting. I still think it's a good stop if you're around the Country Music Hall of Fame.
  • One of my favorite places in Nashville. I miss the old location, but the new one is also amazing, you can watch them work and see the kitties behind the glass. There poster work is some of the best in the world. I love collecting Hatch posters.

Where to stay in Nashville

Go to the city center to choose from a selection of hotels lining the streets parallel to the Cumberland River, where most options fall into the mid-range or luxury category and offer swimming pools. Just a stone's throw to the north is the Arts District, where you can stay in a similarly luxurious hotel and find yourself in the thick of the city's live music scene. If you're after great food and trendy cafes, look farther north to the regenerated neighborhood of Germantown.
