Owner description: 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.

“Great piece of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

Was a great lesson in print history, Nashville history, and even country music history. So glad to see them preserving the same tools used for so many years and preserving and carrying on this craft. So many arts like this die off due to convenience and the digital age. I'm glad so many businesses still find the need for quality art and skill in advertising. We learned a lot and took a print home. Although I was hoping to make more of a personalized print, it was still neat.

“I was ready to love this.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

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.

“Worth a visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

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 new!

When in Nashville this is a must for Music fans from all walks of life!

“Make the stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

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.
