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.
Hatch Show Print reviews
I’ve been to N’ville several times but this was my first visit to Hatch Show Print. You must visit this gem. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. You can spend a lot of time here just looking..... more »
Opened in 1879 and is famous for printing posters. A couple years ago when we came, it was open and we were able to actually do a tour which was so fascinating. Gift shop is open but the print shop... more »
We visited TN from FL and this was the only event I chose to book in advance. We bought tickets to the "Block Party" (which lands on the first Saturday of each month during the art crawl). This was really one of the highlights of my trip. We had a little mini history lesson (I could've sat and listened even longer if they let me) before getting to it. The options felt endless, however, we would have really benefited by extending the time at LEAST one more hour. I went home with a couple incomplete projects, but it was still such a fun experience. My husband enjoyed it greatly, as well, and we have since framed our prints. I've told everyone about the prints and the history behind the Hatch Show. I do wish we got a tour with our tickets, even as a voucher to use the following day, as I assumed I'd get to see the old equipment but didn't get to (so make sure to purchase them separately if you want to see that). However, this doesn't take away from the experience as its own entity. I'd even consider paying for smaller group or personal sessions to get to use some type blocks. Thanks for the memory, guys!
Unique tour. Get to learn about the history, process and famous posters created by the Hatch Print company. First half of the tour is in the printing room, second half is in a classroom/work room. You do get to complete a print to take home (the print is nothing special, but still a cool experience). You get a 10% discount at the shop after your tour (don't forget to ask for the discount).
