How can I change, cancel or return my TMC products order?
For Limited Editions : The nature of limited edition prints/items is that once you place an order, we only make it for you and begin the production process within a few hours of your order. And so it is not possible to cancel orders as they could have already be in midst of production or even shipped; hence we do not accept cancellations, returns, modifications, changes or refunds for Limited Editions.
However, we understand that there can be a sudden afterthought, or an error in orders, so we offer a 2-hour window to cancel or change your order from the moment you placed it earlier. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number along your request to cancel/modify and we shall comply as per your requirements. Please note no orders can be cancelled/changed or returned after a 2-hour window and all sales are final.

LIMITED EDITION/ WALL ART
FOR TMC PRINTS ONLY
There is always a difference in colours – in what we see on screen and how it gets printed on paper. So please be aware that there will be a colour variation, however, we supervise each print with offline printing expertise, so the variation will be to its minimum.
- To prevent fading or color distortion, it’s best to hang your paper print away from direct sunlight and in a cool, dry space and definitely not outdoors or in balconies.
- Remove dust by blowing gently, or using compressed air – (a hair dryer set to low & cool helps).
- Never use water or cleaning products of any kind to clean your paper print. It can cause the inks to run.
- Framing is always a good option to protect art prints from dust, water damage, and tears. However, if you plan to keep the print rolled-up for a while please consider using small silica bags in the box that help absorb moisture and humidity. Silica gel packets can be found at the pharmacy.
- While opening the print, get some help of a friend and hold the prints by its edges to avoid any creases and bumps
- Never please any heavy object on top of your paper print, it will leave weight creases.
- Best practice is to hand it to a framer immediately.

How is my order / item packaged?
Indian Memory Shop packaging is designed to protect your order. We care that you receive the best product you have ordered and so we wrap the item well. At the same time, we also care that our packaging is environmentally friendly and does not entail too much waste. Prints are usually rolled in a mailing tube that we think you can re-purpose and re-use. Other products are packaged in protective boxes or envelopes. If your order contains different products they may be shipped as separate items and may arrive on different days.
What are the Delivery Times?
If your product is a Limited Edition custom produced item then it is individually printed and assembled after you order it, so please do permit 5-10 days for production time and delivery.
If the item is available with us in our existing inventory, then we ship your order within 5-7 working days after the order is placed. We request you to permit us extra time for your order to be processed during public holidays/peak season (e.g., Diwali, Christmas, etc.) in India. The seasons affect production and shipping services as well.
A delay may also occur due to a pending payment authorisation, which is outside of Indian Memory Shop’s influence or control. Some countries may require additional time.
