Have been a fan of "hatch" style posters for decades...but never sought out and visited. SO, finding ourselves in Nashville, we plunged into the Hatch experience. Took the tour, made a print AND listened to some great history while working on the print. I was...More

The tour guides were so fun and full of neat stories! The nostalgia of printed posters and the legacy of Hatch Show Print shouldn't be missed! We even made our own prints while learning about the history of Hatch Show Print. Highly recommend!

Interesting business with a long history. However the tour is not for everyone. Starts with a 20min talk while guests stand in the print shop space. Crowded and not one place to sit. Detailed (perhaps tediously so) descriptions. Then group moves to a "classroom". At...More

Everyone needs to stop in this store once in their lives. I did not have time for the tour but I will come back again. You must purchase a poster to enjoy in your home. Very colorful and full of history.

We booked a private group tour that lasted an hour; about thirty minutes in the print shop area and thirty minutes in a classroom where we got to each make a mini print to take home.

No, there isn't any customizing. They may have two prints to choose from but you just roll the ink on the pre-printed stock. It's a nice, dated souvenir and the tour is well worth the time and money.
