Our Policies & Legal Notices

CleanSlate by Tina is committed to providing you with the best service and highest quality product! In keeping with this, we advise you of several of our policies affecting customer relations and quality control.


Our Business


CleanSlate by Tina was founded by Christina F. Racicot (“Tina”) in 2013. It is not a formally organized company, but maintains a business (d/b/a) certificate in the Town of Marshfield, Massachusetts.


Our Website, including the CleanSlate Online Store, is hosted by its parent site, Both and are domains owned and managed by Christopher J. Gavrielidis.


Legal, Web & Business Inquiries


All legal and business inquiries, and any questions about this website should be initiated with the Webmaster.


Custom Image Quality


Be advised that we cannot guarantee perfect quality for all custom photos. Because many photos are taken with cell phones, sometimes photo quality is not optimal for our products. (Generally, the quality of the product will match the quality of the photo we are provided.) For best results, we suggest that you send us a photo that has a resolution of at least 200 DPI. (If you’re unsure whether your photo is 200 DPI, we can tell you—just ask!) We will still be more than happy to fulfill orders of photos with a lower resolution—but we just cannot guarantee top quality in such cases. We remind our customers that custom orders cannot be returned (see Return Policy below). If you have any questions about the quality of your photo, please do not hesitate to contact us!




We regret that we are unable to provide a system for proofing your custom order prior to consulting directly with us. Reach out to Tina directly to inquire as to whether your photo will work with our product, and whether the quality is sufficient (see Custom Image Quality above). If you place an order on our website and, prior to shipping, we find that your photo will not work with our product, we will issue a refund. Rest assured, the vast majority of photos are compatible with our product!


Use of Submitted Photos


By placing a custom order and uploading your photo on the CleanSlate Online Store, you consent to the use and display of your photo on CleanSlate by Tina advertising material, including material used on this website. Photos sent by email for proofing or inquiry purposes only will not be used.

Gavrielidis unless otherwise indicated and cannot be used without express written permission. The CleanSlate logo, including seasonal variations, includes an artistic edit of a photograph of our rock slate, the words “CleanSlate” together, without a space, with an enlarged “t” to resemble a cross, and the words “by Tina” in Christina Racicot’s handwriting.
