The Mystery Around Product Packaging: the Effect of Fantasy Labels on Product Evaluation and Actual Purchases

We investigate when, how, and why fantasy labels affect product evaluations and purchasing behavior. Across three studies, we find a positive effect of fantasy labels but only in the presence of product quality signals. Moreover, this positive effect is sequentially driven by the evocation of the imaginary and positive affect.
