Will I get a letter in the mail after my record has been sealed?

I went through the process of getting my record sealed in Texas. I was granted the right to have my record sealed by a judge on July 1st. I just want to know if I will receive something in the mail besides the documents I received in the court room.

Some clerks of the court will send a basic follow-up letter that says 'hey, a final order has been entered.'  However, that is generally the most you will receive.  The order in the courtroom that you received is usually all that you are required to receive and that the court is required to provide.
