Paper gpu life limit

They expire on the same day as they would have if still in e-form, but is there any limit to how long the upgrade is good for on PAPER?

In other words, when I make 1k can I request a paper GPU cert and keep presenting it at the LH gate until it finally clears or expires at the one year limit?

If a paper GPU doesn't clear, can I convert it back to an electronic GPU?
