Even if you aren't in the market for posters, be sure to check this place out! It was something else to see all the different posters from Elvis to Blake Shelton. The shop is pretty small though as far as the area for customers. If you have strollers you might want to take turns and leave those outside. They have... More

If you love excellent silk screen poster art ... many featuring legendary music performers, this is a must see in Nashville. It is located in the middle of the tourist strip downtown, but this place has been around long before the big tourist development arrived. It's authentic and well worth the trip. All in all, the visit is a real... More

I visited Hatch Show Print late in the day, I'm wondering if I missed something (ie. seeing them hard at work!) I kind of wish I'd bought a poster while I was there. If you're thinking shall I/ shan't I, when you're there.... do it 'cos you'll regret it when you get home with nothing! A real highlight of the... More

A stop on a walking trip of downtown. Historic because they printed posters for old stars. Print limited edition for performances. For me this is an old manual print business. Posters on sale. This didn't impress me but may be good for someone interested in the poster memoribilia.

My husband is in printing so this was the highlight of the trip for him. When Bethany found out about his experience and knowledge she treated him extra special and gave him the grand tour. These ladies are very knowledgeable about printing and the history of Hatch Show Print. They also have a great shop to buy posters, shirts, etc.... More

This shop is a total blast from the past; it feels like a working museum. It was fun to just browse their selection of prints for sale (we picked up a poster of their house dog - a terrier). If you saw a show at the Ryman or Opry while you were visiting, chances are they'll have a print left... More
