I came across some Hatch Show Prints in the Nashville airport on a work trip, and made a special trip to check out their shop at the Country Music Hall of Fame. I'm a big fan of letterpresses in general, but this shop was very unique. They specialize in posters for shows around Nashville, and have a recognizable style with... More

My wife and I first visited Hatch Show Print on an anniversary weekend in Nashville a couple of years ago. It was in a great old downtown location and had tons of ambiance and character. We had the chance to talk to some of the printers and they spent quite a bit of time showing us the printing presses and... More

I loved the old Hatch Show Print space on Broadway, but the new gallery allows for show-casing print artists from around the country.

If you like art and want to be part of the process take this tour! I Thought this was going to be a boring tour from the other reviews, however when we arrived the guideswere super friendly and learning the process of print making was actually very cool. Once through the tour of how its done, we were shown who... More

A group of fellow art and design students took a tour on Sunday morning, and it was lead by two highly knowledgeable ladies who were the definition of friendly and very good at making for an amazing tour. They made a special effort to adjust the tour to be specific to things that we as students needed to know and... More

It was ok, not worth a tour to pay. Interesting history but nothing to spend alot of time there. The gift shop was ok, alittle pricey.

Hatch Show Print is a waste of money. For $15, they label it as a "tour" but really, you just stand behind a rope looking at the old printing machines and the so-called host talks about the history of the business. There is no history of the printing press in general or anything of interest. Then, they take you to... More

I had never heard of Hatch Show Prints before I started researching for my trip to Nashville. I saw that you could only reserve a spot by calling the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. I did that just so I could experience all I could while touring Nashville and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. I'm... More
