Description
Hatch Show Print Tour Photos (10)

On this historical tour, visit the home of legendary Hatch Show Prints, a distinctive part of Americana for more than 135 years! The Hatch family business, an art craft of letterpress printmaking has been a piece of Nashville since 1879.  One of the very first print jobs the produced was a handbill for Reverend Beecher (brother of Harriet Beecher Stowe) and from that first print struck they had achieved a look that would become American history.

About Hatch Print


This family-created and owned print shop started in 1875 when William Hatch moved his family to Music City. Letterpress printing was in their blood, with the two sons grew up honing the craft and learning the trade. The sons, Herbert and Charles, created their first print shop where they went on to create everything from announcements for Reverend Henry Ward Beecher to vaudeville acts to local shoe shine shops. This print shop revolutionized techniques and is a landmark for artists, journalists, and historians alike. Of course, the printmaking also influenced the rise of country music in Nashville having created the posters for artists such as Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and Bessie Smith. 

Hatch created posters for circuses, vaudeville acts, minstrel shows, you name it. Hatch posters were found plastered across buildings in the city and barns in the country.  From 1925 to 1992 the distinctive artwork posters were created at their location just behind the Ryman Auditorium. Today they still produce about 600 posters yearly, and visitors can visit the production shop to see them rolling off the press.
