I’m doing table centerpieces with chemistry lab glassware (volumetric flasks, beakers, erlenmeyer flasks, etc). For favors I want to do a test tube with candy at each place setting.
I’m trying to make the tags for the tubes (which will be attached with string), but I feel like what I’m coming up with for wording isn’t the greatest. Here it is.
Any thoughts on improving it?

i love it how it is, maybe dim down the other letters one more color, they still kind of pop out

WICKED cute idea!!! I would keep the same font as the periodic table for the “Love is” and “Thank you” bits rather than using Papyrus.

@thenextmrsi: +1. I would use a simpler font too.
@Jennlee: Really cute idea 🙂

I have no extra suggestions, other than just to say that it’s a brilliant idea!

@Jennlee: I actually think that is SUPER cute. I showed it to my engineer fiance and he freaked out over it. Any guests who are into science will LOVE it.
The only thing that I might suggest is looking for another font for the “Love is” and “Thank you for sharing in our day.” It doesn’t seem to go with the periodic table font.

Update – I changed the font to a script, lightened the extra letters in the periodic table section (in print they appear a bit lighter than in a jpg), and added some lines above and below (our colors are green and blue) Whatcha think? Better than earlier version?

Better, yes. Though I’m still not crazy about it. Maybe one of the fonts that is made to look like normal handwriting, like one would use taking notes?

@Jennlee: I just love it! My SO got his PhD in molecular biology and spent many years at the bench. If I wasn’t such a science idiot, I would totally do something like this.
