The word stationery comes from the word stationer, an archaic word to refer to a bookseller or publisher. As you can see, these are two very different words. Stationary is an adjective that describes objects that are not moving, while stationery is a noun that refers to pens, pencils, paper, envelopes, etc. Stationery is a mass noun referring to commercially manufactured writing materials, including cut paper, envelopes, writing implements, continuous form paper, and other office supplies. Stationery includes materials to be written on by hand (e.g., letter paper) or by equipment such as computer printers.
