Large Print Periodic Table

No time for fine print. This large print periodic table will help you with your eye strain.

Color Large Print Periodic Table

Color Large Print Periodic TableThis color periodic table contains the usual element numbers, symbols, element names, and atomic masses, but has the added bonus of larger type. This periodic table includes all 118 elements known as of 2017.

The element names are as large as I could consistently make them. I chose to make the names a uniform font size with the exception of the really long ones (rutherfordium, darmstadtium, roentgenium, and praseodymium). The rest of the information is much easier to read than the usual printable periodic table.

To print, download the PDF and choose either “Fit” or “Shrink oversized pages” under Page Sizing and Handling in the print options. Remember to choose Landscape for your orientation to use more space on the paper.

Here’s a collection of all 118 periodic table element symbols. You can print them and put them together to make words and signs. These images are optimized to print and resize cleanly with a small file size. You’re welcome to print them for your classroom, parties, decorations, etc. However, they’re copyrighted, so please don’t post them online or use them for products to sell.

If you’d like to see an element with a different color background or spelling, just post a reply. I have added Aluminium and Sulphur.

How To Download and Save the Color Element Symbols

The images are large, so rather than post them full-size, each element symbol is linked to its own page. To get the symbol, click the element and go to its page and right click and save the image.

Color Periodic Table for Kids

Color Periodic Table for Kids

This color periodic table has all the useful information of other periodic tables, such as atomic number, element symbol, element name, and atomic mass. The rainbow colors of each cell indicates the element group.  The difference between a kid’s periodic table and other tables is the atomic masses have been rounded to two decimal points. This avoids issues of significant figures when learning basic chemistry homework concepts that may distract the student.

This periodic table is optimized to print on a single 812 by 11″ sheet of paper. Just download the PDF file and choose Landscape as your print option.
