I was really looking forward to this, but I found it a little dull. There were various interesting prints, but all in all, I would skip it next time around. If you are into this stuff, you will probably go crazy for it though.

I've always seen Hatch show prints but didn't know the amazing story behind these well known concert posters until I stopped by this place. On every trip to Nashville I made a visit by the cool place to watch the artisans at work. This is the newest location, the older location was off the Broadway strip. This location is somewhat...

We stopped by the location inside the Country Music Hall of Fame. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to take the tour. Looking at all the old prints was great! You can watch them make new ones on site.

We unfortunately couldn't take the tour due to a private event but the gift shop and employees of Hatch were amazing. There was a musician playing inside the print shop when we were there and he was amazing. I just loved the vibe of this place. This shop is worth visiting and only takes 30 minutes to an hour to...

I've always been a fan of Hatch and couldn't wait to go! We didn't do the tour, but all of the merch was great to see. They have been around for over 100 years and still make show posters, among other things. It was neat to check out their framed and unframed prints in the gallery and also see the... More

Okay, to be fair....I am very biased with this review. I LOVE HATCH SHOW PRINTS. Fantastic history and wonderful work. Artwork is great and the traditional approach is fabulous. You can purchase generic prints or also have one customized. Pricing is more than reasonable, with many prints ranging from $15-$20. I picked up a generic one for $5. Excellent piece... More

My husband and I went today and this is a most,interesting and informative tour. Really gives you a new appreciation of the old printing press they still use. You learn of the history and even get to print your own poster. Well worth the money and time.

Whether you are a collector of the Hatch prints, a history buff or just a visitor to Nashville, I would recommend a stop in at the Hatch Show Print. Its interesting to look at the history of this posters and how they are made. Its also fun to see all of the performers these prints have captured in ink.

I had been lucky enough to stop in when Hatch was located on Broadway Street. The feeling now is tourist trap. When this was located on Broadway I would stop in numerous times on my trips. Now I do not even stop in there. I love the HOF and all that goes along with it but this was just wrong... More
