Founded in 1879 in Nashville, TN, Hatch Show Print is still an active working letterpress and design shop. They create posters advertising everything from concerts, state fairs, you name it... all using the same letterpress methods as they always have. It is amazing to see and hear about the great work they've done through design.
The exhibit was amazing and a huge plus in my trip... even after I returned home. As I was reading through my daily blogs that I am so-devoted to. I came across this one from Hello!Lucky discussing some new Hatch Show Print wine labels. These new wine bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon by Three Thieves has been embellished with some Hatch Show Print inspired labels.
If that wasn't enough, while I was making a quick stop for something to hydrate myself at my local 711, there it was, right in front of me! Right in between Sonoma Crest and Newman's Own:
The labels instantly stand out, and in my biased opinion, are a great packaging design for wine lovers. Check it out, I hear it tastes great.. and while you're at it, you can share your knowledge of its packaging history.
Ta-ta for now!
