Hi! We’re the original designers of the printable periodic tables and science graphics you see on the internet. Visit or to print free periodic tables and learn about science. Get the highest quality images, straight from the source!

Todd Helmenstine makes the periodic tables and much of the graphic art. Anne Helmenstine plays with fire and is responsible for the photography that you see. Anne makes molecules and fractals and sci-fi scenes.

We both have degrees in physics and math, so our art tends toward the geek/nerd side of life.
