Hatch Show Print, a working letterpress print shop since 1879, uses its vast collection of vintage type and hand-carved imagery to create timeless designs that express and commemorate America's evolving cultural identity. From the restrikes, or historical reprints, of posters for classic films and advertisements for circuses and state fairs, to the custom orders printed in the shop today, the products of Hatch Show Print have always been designed and printed by hand in Nashville, Tennessee.
The shop’s enduring design and production approach is a handmade mainstay in a world of digital design. Specializing in limited-runs of posters in which one designer oversees the entire process from start to finish, including the packing and shipping by the dedicated designer, Hatch’s history of commercial printing continues with the commemorative works of art printed in the shop today.
Sharing long-standing relationships with Grand Ole Opry stars and the Ryman Auditorium, among other historic Nashville landmarks, Hatch Show Print’s posters are woven into the fabric of Music City and beyond. The shop’s reach extends as far as the touring musicians who have traveled with their show posters and as far as the music venues throughout the country and internationally that have ordered their prints for upcoming performances. To see a poster from Hatch Show Print is to see the visual history of Nashville, Tennessee, the Southern United States, and the nation as a whole.
Hatch Show Print became a historic property of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in 1992 and now also operates as a working museum, providing educational experiences for diverse audiences with a focus on preservation through production—but at the end of the day, at the end of the year, or even at the ends of centuries, Hatch Show Print has always been and will always be a print shop.
