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. Make Hatch Show Print a centerpiece of your Nashville vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Nashville travel planner.

  • We missed the tour (last one is at 3pm, wish they went later!), but the small gallery was still interesting to see. This was a great spot to get a souvenir.

  • I wasn’t sure what to expect when we booked this tour but it was actually pretty cool. Very informational about the prices of printing & everything is very original which I appreciated more after going through the tour. We were able to make our own print as a souvenir. I definitely recommend this tour. Our guide was so great!!
  • Hatch Show Print is a working print shop that specializes in printing posters. You can actually see the artists and staff working and printing through the shop's front windows, and that in itself is pretty cool. But to really understand the history of Hatch Show Print and the process of ink printing, I highly recommend their tour. Two young ladies hosted our tour and both were very knowledgeable about the history of the company and the craft of poster making. Their presentation was informative, interesting, and humorous. Guests gain a new appreciation of the time and effort that goes into making an ink printed poster. A little bonus for tour-takers is the opportunity to ink up a printer and make their own souvenir poster to take home. And while in the workshop, guests can view hundreds of posters adorning the walls as well as the oldest printer in the shop. We took several tours while in Nashville, and Hatch Show Print was high on our list of favorites. We are very glad we visited!
