Is there a method of preserving stickers, decals, or bumper-stickers from yellowing or damage?

I bought a Toyota Tundra Endeavour bumper sticker to commemorate the journey to the California Science Center and thinking about pledging for the U.S. Space & Rocket Center STA decal.

Get a pack of large (8x14) archival-safe acid-free plastic sleeves. Place oversized paper items like bumper stickers in them and store in a dark place.

Thanks for the tips! I'm assuming a cool, dry place would also be ideal as well.
