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.
Hatch Show Print’s Haley Gallery displays restrikes of original posters from the collection, as well as contemporary interpretations of Hatch Show Print’s classic wood blocks created by national and local artists. All of the restrikes of iconic posters, in addition to all of the new work inspired by the celebrated blocks, are available for purchase.
Today, over 100,000 annual visitors to Rep. John Lewis Way S experience some aspect of the shop, whether it’s to watch the designer-printers in action or par
