Hatch Show Print

As one of America’s oldest working letterpress print shops, Hatch Show Print has played a significant role in shaping the visual language of Music City since 1879.

For much of the twentieth century, Hatch Show Print’s posters served as a leading advertising medium for Southern entertainment and music, with posters rolling out for members of the Grand Ole Opry such as Bill Monroe, Minnie Pearl, and Ernest Tubb, as well as for rock & roll heroes such as Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, and more.

Today, the shop continues that handmade tradition by designing and printing posters for hundreds of artists, performers, and businesses annually, and creating and producing posters, prints, t-shirts, and more among other unique gifts available for purchase in the gift shop or online.

Located inside the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in downtown Nashville, the historic print shop carries on the organization’s mission of education, offering tours and other hands-on experiences too.
