I was excited about visiting Hatch based on it's history and the opportunity to take home a unique Nashville/CMAfest souvenir. The posters and old machines were meet; however, we found that a historic shop in a modern setting doesn't really translate well and were very disappointed to find that they have missed the obvious opportunity to make CMAfest or Nashville...

Located inside the Country Music Hall of the Fame. Great history. I would recommend taking a tour of the process of print making.

I'm feeling very excited about bringing an iconic art form to Nashville music back home with me! Small store, limited but good selection and decent pricing. The actual print is in a fishbowl style room, so you can see a bit of the process. Pretty cool!

If money and time weren't an issue, I know my husband would have enjoyed taking a tour here. We had to make a decision though, and the Hall of Fame won out. We did shop at Hatch and got to watch someone using the press to print some posters. My daughter seemed hypnotized by the process and was able to... More

The Hatch print shop is a working, fascinating piece of Nashville's history and culture. The gallery offers whimsical, artistic, classic, and western prints made in-house. The shop offers small prints, greeting cards and souvenirs. Take the tour of printmakers at work or just watch through the glass windows. Hatch does not have a website, so purchase/ship when you visit, or... More

Terrific place to browse and pick up cool souvenirs. On the same block as the Omni hotel. Connected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Loved it.

I am a huge fan of their work, and I love the convenient location on the HoF building. The gift shop is a great stop for those looking for truly unique Nashville souvenirs. You can spend a couple of bucks...or thousands in the gallery. One of my favorite businesses in town. (Be sure to check out the gallery of signed... More

This was the stop I was most excited for on my trip and I was not disappointed! If you are at all interested in art/design or even history this is the perfect spot. The tour was great. You got to step into the working print shop and witness employees/interns working on actual poster orders on the really old, really cool... More

My husband and I enjoyed the behind the scenes tour and learning about the history of Hatch Show Print. The guides explained the process of how the posters are designed and printed...and we got to make a small poster at the end of the tour.
