GMA Exhibit: Hatch Show Print: Est. 1879

Established in 1879, Hatch Show Print reflects the history of American advertising and entertainment, as one of the oldest letterpress design and print shops in America. Each Hatch Show Print poster is a unique creation, individually handcrafted and inked onto paper in a technique that dates back several centuries. The process, known as letterpress, involves selecting (or, if necessary, carving) images carved in wood or linoleum, setting up wood and/or metal type, then inking and pressing these elements onto paper to form a poster or print. Founded by the Hatch brothers, C.R. and H.H., the business blossomed in the 1920s under the steady hand of C.R.'s son Will T. Hatch, who applied his own bold style in hand carving the wood blocks.
