★ What's a black light poster?
poster is a poster printed with inks which fluoresce
under a black light. The inks used contain
phosphors which cause them to glow when exposed to
ultraviolet light emitted from black lights.
The 1960s gave birth to the pervasive use of illegal
drugs mainly hallucinogenics such as LSD (lysergic acid
diethylamide), mescaline, and marijuana.
With the ability to glow and vibrate under ultraviolet
light, the posters could simulate the sensations and
visual distortions one experienced during an acid trip.
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.
Although blacklight posters have continually been
produced since the 1960s, there has been a resurgence in
popularity since 2007 as blacklight and glow-in-the-dark
parties have become more popular. As of 2014, there are
five companies actively producing new and classic
flocked blacklight posters in a wide range of content,
including music, nature, and pop culture. The black
parts of these posters are overlaid with black flocking,
which gives it a velvet feel, and these are often
referred to as velvet posters.
