Default Both OK

Both are OK.

Thank you email is the standard thing but a Thank You Postcard is more physical and may impress the recipient more than just an email.

I've added a poll to your thread and let's see what others vote for.

Prepare a bunch of postcards in your bag and distribute to all interviewers after each interview

Angry Forget it

There's no need to send the thank you BS
No PD is going to read it and it's not going to help you by any means
