This was the best tour, we learned so much about printing and the history of Nashville . The girls who provided our tour were funny and entertaining and just so sweet to my kids. It was facinating and I would highly recommend it!!

We love just going and looking around this unique place. Great old posters. FYI -- you can enter from the hall leading from the lobby at the Omni Hotel. Also a great store called the Five & Tenn next to the Hatch Show Print.

Missed the tour by about 15 minutes, but thoroughly enjoyed wandering through the shop, peering into the printery side, and shopping for a few souvenirs. If you like show posters, letterpress printing, or just need a quick indoor activity while in Nashville that doesn't involve...More

Have been a fan of "hatch" style posters for decades...but never sought out and visited. SO, finding ourselves in Nashville, we plunged into the Hatch experience. Took the tour, made a print AND listened to some great history while working on the print. I was...More

We booked a private group tour that lasted an hour; about thirty minutes in the print shop area and thirty minutes in a classroom where we got to each make a mini print to take home.
