POSTAL STATIONERY

A piece of postal stationery is a stationery item, such as a stamped envelope, letter sheet, postal card, lettercard, aerogram orwrapper, with an imprinted stamp or inscription indicating that a specific rate of postage or related service has been prepaid. It doesnot, however, include any postcard without a pre-printed stamp. Postal cards are postal stationery and have a printed or embossed indicium and are sold by governmental postal authorities. Some of the forms taken by postal cards include the regular single card, the attached message-reply cards, airmail postal cards, and official postal cards used for official government business with a "penalty for private use".
