bird dog press // design + letterpress

like a spring chicken


Okay so parking was tough! but there are few words to really describe the awe that is bundled up in this 130-year-old letterpress legend. Hatch Show Print had my heart first as a student in the Graphic Design program at the University of Tennessee. Brad was kind enough to let his ink dry a little while he showed me around the most amazing wood type collection, huge presses and stacks of Grand Ol Opry ephemera. It is a well oiled machine and I was happy to hear the demand is still so high that their turn-around time is 4 to 6 weeks. A busy letterpress is a happy letterpress. These guys are the pioneers. I aspire to be the show print press of Planet Bluegrass here in Lyons someday soon.
