A blacklight poster is a poster printed with inks which fluoresce under black light. The inks used contain phosphors which cause them to glow when exposed to the ultraviolet light emitted from black lights.
In the United States, blacklight posters emerged as part of the psychedelic fashion scene between 1967 and 1969. Since then, the art form has gone out of fashion and is generally viewed as a relic of the 1970s.
