Printable Periodic Table of Elements

Do you need a printable periodic table of elements? Among the dozens of periodic tables on Science Notes, these are the ones readers tell us are their favorites. If you don’t see you personal favorite on the list, let us know which is it, and we’ll add it here.

Most Popular Printable Periodic Table of Elements

The two most popular printable periodic tables are the neon theme table and the muted colors table. Both of these tables are HD and feature light colors that print pale enough that you can read all of the data, but bright enough so you can distinguish the element groups at a glance.

This final printable periodic table of the elements is the very first table Science Notes added to the website. While it’s extremely popular, some facts and figures have changed on the periodic table since we started. So, if you like this table best, you might want to get the 2015 version of this table, with either a white or black background. The original version does have the newer elements copernicium, flerovium, and livermorium, but the newer table has updated atomic mass values and a few other corrections. All of the newer tables re-size very well if you use them for wallpapers, too.

Printable Periodic Table Use

Feel free to print as many copies of the printable periodic table as you like and to save them to your mobile device or hard drive. Let us know if you’d like to use the table in a printed publication — you can post a comment and we’ll get back to you!
