The Cross-Modal Effects of Packaging Glossiness on Haptic Perception

This article examines the cross-modal effect of glossiness versus matte packaging on haptic perception and product liking. It shows that a product with a glossy packaging is perceived as lighter, thinner, colder and smoother than a product with a matte packaging. Moreover a glossy packaging increases the product liking.
