ABOUT US / PRODUCTS AND PRINTING
Racing Retro was created in 2014 on the initiative of 2 graphic designer friends (Mark Webb and Sergio Vieira) who shared the same passion: motorsport.
Webb has worked as a designer since 1998 and has provided services to the most important agencies in Europe and US, and currently runs his own company. Vieira, who has worked as a graphic designer since 1995, was administrator of F1's pioneering statistics, stories and information websites and one of the most complete at the time until 2008.
The Racing-Retro team is also made up of other motorsport lovers: Royce Ericsson, is our IT specialist and responsible for site maintenance and logistics, and Tatyanna Medeiros responsible for customer service and quality control.
In the beginning the works were sold on the main marketplace sites in the world and were very successful with the style and creativity of the arts. And in 2018 they decided to create their own e-commerce with their own brand: Racing-Retro was born.
Racing-Retro aims to rescue the stories of motorsport, events, teams and drivers. And in these stories, we highlight not only those that worked, but also those that went wrong or did not meet the expectations of their creators. Every effort, be they grandiose or in vain, has reserved space here, which makes us the largest catalog of automobile memorabilia on the internet.
Buying Racing Retro products keeps memories and part of motorsport history alive. Everything done with a lot of passion, from fan to fan.

Drawings are printed on products using the best printing machines in the industry. Ensuring quality and color fidelity.
- T-Shirts and Jackets:
DTG (direct-to-garment) printing is like using a regular printer, but on t-shirts. Designs are printed directly onto the garment and absorb into the fabric. The DTG method it yields quality prints and there's no limit to the colors and fine detail.
DTG inks are eco-friendly, CPSIA-compliant, non-toxic, non-hazardous, and soluble in water. They're free from heavy metals, formaldehyde, and Alkylphenol Ethoxylates (APE).

This is a technique where the design is embroidered flat onto the garment, and it works well for fine details.
Individual shirts are packaged in a see-through polymer bag, and then placed in a polymer mailer. Larger quantities are packaged into boxes.

Individual mugs are packaged in boxes that keep the mug secure in the center of the box. Multiple mugs are covered in bubble wrap, placed in individual boxes, and then combined all together in one box.
- Phone Cases:
We use UV printing technology for phone cases. With this process, graphics are printed onto the case with UV-curable ink. The ink is cured with a UV light as soon as it comes in contact with the case, which polymerizes it and forms a hard coating.
Our phone cases are mostly meant for cosmetic purposes, but they'll protect your phone from scratching and smudging.
