No and Yes. I don't think there are very many clerk's offices with hard copy membership records any longer.
That said, there are things that appear on the printed copy of the membership record that do not appear anywhere else. So I always suggest to clerks that they print out the membership record when it first arrives, give it to the bishop for his review, and then have the shredder handy.
When the prompt appears that asks if you want to print a copy for the bishop, we always say no, and then just give him the clerk's copy. (They are the same.)
