Hatch Show Print, Nashville

4.4
The birthplace of the art of letterpress printmaking, Hatch Show Print embraces modern design while continuing the traditional technique it's employed since 1879. The company made a name for itself in the 19th century by printing bills for show business. Stop by the gallery to view some of Hatch's original prints, as well as loaned prints from other notable companies. A workshop called Space for Design teaches participants the art of printmaking. You can book a tour that reveals the history of the craft. Use the shop's carved wood and other blocks to make your own print to take home.

  • Hatch Show Print is located in a very beautiful building and is well maintained by the staff and employees of it! The tour we chose was $18/person and it included a history of the print shop, a demonstration, and you get to make your own print! Very worth the time and money to check out in Nashville if you’re an artsy or history type of person. Staff was pleasant and professional as well.
  • The gallery space was really great and the gift shop was too much fun - you can get really unique prints for not a lot of money.
  • Neat place. Got to talk with Kathy and she showed us the process of letter press. Really cool location. There isn't exactly any room to do this, but I kept wishing they had tours of the space behind the counter. This historical location—the shelves of hardware, especially—reminded me of Ollivander's from Harry Potter. (Edit: Apparently there are tours. Had no idea...)
  • Love digging thought the 5 dollar pile of posters.
