What is the point of thank you cards or notes?

Why is a simple thank you not enough? What is the need for sending thank you cards? Do you think of someone any less if they send you an email saying thank you instead of a card, for say a wedding gift? I'm asking this after seeing a ? here asking if children should be taught to write thank you notes. I personally have never understood why someone would need/want a thank you card. Is the thank you the person says after getting the gift not enough?

    Valid points. I think writing is a need, I just never understood why someone needed more than a simple thank you. I guess creating a good memory is a good reason.
