HARTFORD PRINTS!, 42½ PRATT STREET, HARTFORD, CT 06103
Hartford Prints! is the only storefront in downtown Hartford painted cyan and magenta. The eye-catching window is located on the historic Pratt Street. Three Hartford-native sisters founded the business in 2009 and opened the store in 2013 with the goal of creating a retail brand with real purpose: to give back to the city that raised them. Hartford Prints! sells whimsical handmade cards, locally sourced home and bath goods, apparel, and accessories. Products feature the city skyline, phrases such as “small state big heart,” clever references to Hartford history, and artsy depictions of local geography. The shop also offers candle making, calligraphy, and photography workshops with local artists. Hartford Prints! is an ideal place to buy gifts for Bantams with pride that runs deeper than the blue and gold and into the city that Trinity has called home for nearly 200 years.
