I was a bit dubious when my husband recommended that we stop by. I am so glad we did! The people are friendly, the prints are interesting (and yes, we did bring one home!) and the cats are rescues - one of whom couldn't get enough petting. This place was a perfect stop when in Nashville!

Check out the cool print shop with all kinds of promo posters to see and purchase if you find one that interest you. I regret not picking up a few and framing them. A must do while downtown!

Find a bit of history in this store. Many famous posters/prints of their unique style of art. When you enter, make sure you don't step on the cat or let it out the door.

This is one of the hidden treasures of Music City. I always enjoy visiting there and seeing what these guys are printing. They always have something going on and are always happy to show you around and discuss LetterPress printing with anyone that is interested.

The name Hatch Show Print conjures up old time country music shows, the heyday of circuses and of history. But it is not the most impressive of buildings, in fact it looks like what is a business whose job it is to produce prints. BUT let me say, staff is very well informed and will go extra mile for their... More

I never knew this place existed until I visited tripadvisor.com and found it within the attractions section. I'm not a graphic designer, but I enjoyed visual stimulation. This place was great. The staff is super friendly; the store is quaint, but filled from floor to ceiling with prints. I didn't leave empty handed and will be back anytime I'm in... More

This place was neat, but not a whole lot to see. However, when you enter, it is like going back 50 years or more in time. You smell the printer's ink as soon as you go in, and just to look back into the printing area and see all the old-time racks of printer's tools and to know how much... More
