Hatch Show Print Tour Photos (7)

Visit the home of legendary Hatch Show Prints, a distinctive part of Americana for more than 135 years! The Hatch family business, an artcraft 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 acheived a look that would become American history.

Hatch created posters for circuses, vaudeville acts, minsterel 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.  You'll learn about the history of Hatch, and see some of the old, original posters in the Gallery. The tour concludes in the Hatch Show Print Space for Design, where guests watch demonstrations, get some hands-on experience and create a keepsake print!
