I'm considering using two signed covers in a framed piece, along with an official NASA litho and mission patch. I'm new to covers and don't have many, so before I proceed, I thought I should ask others if there is a reason that covers shouldn't be framed.
I'm not looking for personal preference; rather, I'm curious if covers will be damaged by matting and framing. I would be having it professionally done, with proper acid-free materials.
Thanks ahead of time for your feedback. I appreciate the knowledge and opinions of the fine folks on this forum. Thanks!

Space covers are nothing more than paper thus as long as you follow the normal protection (archival as you said) you will be fine.

You should avoid too much light — especially direct sunlight.
If you have scarce space covers, you could choose acid-free plastic sleeves.
