Hey Steven,
I’m assuming you’re asking what happens to Bitcoins on a paper wallet in case of a fork. If that is the question then your Bitcoins are safe on a paper wallet. If a fork does happen you will have both BTC and BTU coins once you import your Bitcoins from that paper wallet.
However – you need to make sure to import them to a wallet that will accept both coins.
