Beginning in the year 2016, the periodic table gained all 118 blocks filled with element names and symbols! Here’s a colorful periodic table you can print, to make handouts, posters, or study guides.
Colorful Periodic Table with White Background
Here’s the table with the “white” background. Actually, it’s transparent, so if you print it on colored paper or fabric, the color will show through.
Colorful Periodic Table with Black Background
Here’s the black background version of the table:
Colorful Periodic Table PDF
There’s also a PDF of this table you can download with a transparent background. This image is gigantic, intended to look great even on 4K monitors.
Periodic Table Printing Instructions
The image is smaller than the file (so the page will load), so to get the full-sized version, click the link for the color of image you prefer. Then you can download or print it.
We didn’t put the copyright on the picture because it’s prettier this way, but to retain all rights to the images. As always, you’re welcome to put the table on your computer, phone, or other mobile device and print it to hand out or put on your wall. Please don’t post it on your website, or we’ll ask you to take it down. If you wish to use the image in a book or publication, just send a note and we’ll likely give you permission 🙂
Wear the Periodic Table (or Drink from It)
We’ve teamed up with Redbubble to offer this table and the individual element tiles on a variety of products, including full-size posters, t-shirts, coffee mugs, leggings, you name it. You can find this table (and many more) at our shop. If you see something on the site you’d like, but can’t find it on the shop, just post a note and we’ll fix you up.
I can’t find a link to a PDF for the black background table. Is the image file that comes up HD or a reduced one?
