If you are comfortable with paper wallets, you can make one using Factoidpapermill. By using this option, you won’t be able to download a traditional printable version of the paper wallet. But this will allow you to generate private and public factoid addresses which you can write or print onto a piece of paper. FactoidPapermill is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
This guide also assumes you're on a secure system that you're sure is not compromised. The steps can be found in the tab below for your system of choice.

factoidpapermill.exefile into the command prompt box and hit enter.

At this point it's up to you how you wish to get these on a piece of paper, write them manually or print them. After that's done put the paper wallet in a highly secure location such as a safe deposit box.
If you wish to send funds to the wallet, simply send Factoids (FCT) to the Factoid address generated.
To withdraw your Factoids from your wallet you can use the Factom Enterprise Wallet. A guide on how to import the private key to the Factom Enterprise wallet and send the coins can be found on the menu bar to the left, or just click here.
