I needed the Periodic Table in vector format, so I decided to just draw one myself. If anyone else needs it as well, here is the Periodic Table of the Elements in Adobe Illustrator format.
My source for the data was from the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), 2007 (http://old.iupac.org/reports/periodic_table/).
If you want to change the font, color, or size of all element properties at once, I have tagged each object type with its own Attribute Note (element_name, atomic_number, element_symbol, atomic_mass, box). For information on how to select objects with the same attribute note, please see my previous post on that topic: How to select the same sub-objects in multiple copies of a group in Adobe Illustrator

You are awesome. Thanks for sharing!
I’m planning a science-themed party for my almost-five-year-old and was about to recreate the periodic table in Illustrator so we could have a “Find the Element” scavenger hunt. You’ve saved me loads of time!!

This is super helpful. I isolated the text and changed it to a different color and overlaid it on mine and my student’s desktops so the elements are always there. Thanks a ton!
thanks for the template! Students are designing a 4’x6′ Periodic Table with images for each element and your template just expedited the process.
thank you, used this to make a shirt for my mom and sister: https://scontent-a-lax.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xaf1/t1.0-9/1908372_10203465829341365_7285148115139815573_n.jpg

Awesome work. Any chance you could publish how to create this from start to finish? Especially the Attribute Notes?
Thanks so much! An editable periodic table was just what I needed! It was perfect for making perfect flash cards for my 8th grade students.
Hi Brian, this is awesome. Buy I am don’t know how to get the Ai file. I click on the link and it takes me to a blank page. Any assistance would be awesome. Thanks M
C, Wonderful! Thanks for sharing your flash cards… I’m glad I could help.
Melissa, I’m not sure what is wrong… I tested the file, and it can definitely be downloaded. Maybe try a different web browser?
Thanks for sharing, great job!
