Typically, the senders of postcards are tourists many of who most probably understand the joy of receiving a postcard from a loved one.
Both the sending and receiving of postcards can sometimes (definitely not always) be a very private and personal experience.
The sender might select a postcard on the basis of the recipients likes or interests. And to the recipient, this implies that the sender knows them and thinks about what they like, of which might evoke warm feelings from the recipient toward the sender.
There is most certainly a difference between the experience of opening a simple digital text message or an email, versus opening your mailbox and finding a physical, tangible un-enveloped postcard with a nice picture on one side.
Not to sound overly romantic but one might even take a sniff at the card.
