Dodgers season ticket holders will receive paper tickets from Clayton Kershaw’s no-hitter. Update.

If you’re a Dodgers season ticket holder, check your email today.

The club eliminated the distribution of paper tickets for season-seat holders prior to this season. Approximately 34,000 were sold. That’s a lot of built-in souvenirs from Clayton Kershaw’s no-hitter Wednesday against the Colorado Rockies — almost all of which were distributed electronically.

People like having paper tickets as a memento from a big game, so the club is prepared to offer one to every season-ticket holder. A letter of notification is going out today, according to a Dodgers spokesperson.

A few fans already have theirs. I spoke to one fan today, Bill Roebuck of Claremont, who purchased a total of 444 tickets prior to the season and complained when the club suggested he print them out at home. “I don’t own a smart phone,” he wrote, “and they expect me to print that many pages out and spend that much on ink — after they already charged me a handling fee?”

Because Bill complained, and the Dodgers complied with his request for paper season tickets, we have some idea what the special souvenir tickets might look like:

Update (8:24 p.m.): The tickets won’t look like that, unless you have a really good printer.

While paper tickets are available to season ticket holders, fans report that they have been asked to print their own.

Update (2:13 a.m.): Here is what season-ticket holders were given today:
