125 Years of Letterpress Y'all

Guess we have printing on the brain after visiting Hamilton Wood Type last weekend, so it's only natural that we post about one of our favorite (and oldest) broadside print shops, Hatch Show Print in Nashville. Since 1879 Hatch Show Print has been printing posters for the Grand Olde Opry and every country music and soul superstar that you can imagine.

Today, Hatch is still a lively and busy working shop - even with a few resident cats who have become known as the 'Hatch Cats', and enjoy quite a cult following...you can even get their poster.

Click here or on the image below for a great video on the daily workings of the presses and people of Hatch Show Print.
