If you follow Southern music, art and culture, from the Delta blues to honky-tonk heroes, you've no doubt seen the unmistakable look of a promotional poster made by Hatch Show Print, one of the oldest working letterpress print shops in America. Located in a historic building at 316 Broadway in the heart of downtown Nashville, Hatch Show Print has produced posters for performers ranging from B.B. King to Dolly Parton.

The printshop is right next to The Country Music Hall of Fame. So you can tie in your museum trip with this tour. In the beginning, I didn't care much for those poster prints displayed or peppered across downtown. I figured they just graphically designed it. Of course that changed after this tour and I realized everything is made just... More

Really small gallery with some really expensive posters. We didn't take the tour to see how they print their posters, it just looked boring.

Ran out of time to do the actual tour. Doesn't cost anything to browse unless you purchase something...which you will! You can pay to do a tour, which you can make a print for yourself.Love the fact this is still done old school. The prints they have done over time are historical.

This was a great tour to tumble upon. Since the line to get into the Music Hall of Fame was quite long, we were reading about things to do....it mentioned the Hatch Show Print tour. So glad that we did it. With all of the posters that you see around town (even at the Grand Old Opry) it now makes... More

located in the Omni Hotel/country music HOF and is a very cool little antique workshop which still makes prints and is actively running. You can make custom orders or purchase standard cardboard prints or have one framed. Hatch show prints produced all the old fashioned artist and concert prints from the golden age of music. It is a small attraction... More

One of a kind. The history in this place is awesome. Only bummer is they have moved from their original location on Broadway. The original location had layers of ink, wood printing block everywhere, quite the ambience. New location by Hall of Fame is beautiful and every bit as cool. Just miss the traditional location. A must visit either way.... More

We loved the tour of the print shop as well as the hands on experience of making our own poster to take home. The staff was friendly and passionate about the company. Definitely worth seeing when in Nashville.
