Phone interview - do I send a follow up thank you card?

I have a phone interview this week for a position that I would literally kill to get. I know the people interviewing me well. Should I send thank you cards after the interview? Or wait for potentially an in-person interview?

Thank you cards are a bit tacky, IMO. And especially more so for a phone interview.

I'd stick to a simple thank you email for this. It's more appropriate and they'll receive it faster than snail mail.

time wise, i can hand deliver a letter the day after, which is what i'd do anyway to save $ on stamps (fuck usps).

You don't think it'd be awkward to drop in where you just had a phone interview? It's not 1954, send a thank you email. Maybe do the hand written note (mailed not hand delivered) after a real interview.

well, it's technically a faculty position (a low paid entry level professional job, but with faculty benefits) so they take the process more seriously.

I don't even know where my office snail mail-box is.

Always, always, always send a thank you. An email is probably sufficient following a phone interview. A face to face absolutely demands a hand written note! Do not be classless. If you neglected to send a thank you note to me, I wouldn't hire you.
