About

For more than a century, Nashville’s Hatch Show Print has produced show-posters for a wide variety of entertainers, from country musicians to magicians, professional wrestlers to rock stars. Hatch is one of oldest letterpress print shops in the United States making entertainment posters, or “show posters.” Operated by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum since 1986 and owned by the Museum since 1992, Hatch is an active business today.

 

The iconic Nashville shop is cited in design textbooks and has been utilized by a wide and growing scope of brands, media, and musicians, from Wired Magazine to Nike, from Nashville’s Hermitage Hotel to Bruce Springsteen, and from CNN to B.B. King. In 2008, the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) assembled American Letterpress: The Art of Hatch Show Print, illustrating Hatch’s creative fusion of art with popular culture and music history. Sherraden and his shop won more international acclaim in 2011 when they were included in the prestigious Meggs’ History of Graphic Design, fifth edition, a standard text in design classes worldwide. Hatch supplied graphics for CNN’s 2008 presidential election coverage, and most recently contributed to Alfred Wertheimer’s photographic book, Elvis and the Birth of Rock and Roll.
