I'd like to announce a program I wrote to backup GnuPG and SSH keys as 
qrcodes on paper:

This is designed as fallback if all your regular backups failed to restore or 
were lost.

Usage is like this:

gpg2 --armor --export "User Name" >key.asc
gpg2 --armor --export-secret-key "User Name" >>key.asc key.asc key.asc.pdf | diff key.asc -
lpr key.asc.pdf

You'll find all the details, reasoning and examples in the README.

Kind regards,
