Stationery is a general name given to paper and office supplies such as envelopes, notepads , pens, pencils, erasers, paper clips, staples, etc., and refers to all products sold by "stationers". The term "stationery" is frequently used to refer more specifically to paper used for written correspondence, usually decorated and/or personalized with matching envelopes.
The word is sometimes confused with "stationary", meaning "not moving". A useful mnemonic for this distinction is a "stationary car".
