Everyone needs to stop in this store once in their lives. I did not have time for the tour but I will come back again. You must purchase a poster to enjoy in your home. Very colorful and full of history.

I added this ticket to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Well worth the time, we enjoyed the tour and making a print at the end.

A concise and enjoyable look back into the artistic process for classics promotional posters at an operating print shop. Friendly, hard working craftsmen/women take time out to explain their craft and shop history, nicely done.

We booked a private group tour that lasted an hour; about thirty minutes in the print shop area and thirty minutes in a classroom where we got to each make a mini print to take home.

No, there isn't any customizing. They may have two prints to choose from but you just roll the ink on the pre-printed stock. It's a nice, dated souvenir and the tour is well worth the time and money.
