Celebrating 110 years… with micro-perforation!
110 YEARS OF GOLD DECORATION FOR PACKAGING
Wauters has been providing expertise to the biggest names in Perfume, Cosmetics and Spirits since 1909.
Today, talented people, technical virtuosity, eco-design, performance and our unremitting search for innovation underpin the art and science of Wauters’ expertise.
To celebrate our 110 years, the house invites micro-perforation to embellish its packaging with an exceptional partner, Delta Composants.
110 YEARS OF INNOVATION AND TRANSFORMATION
Nothing is eternal in our profession. The industry evolves, and brand creativity, new financial and logistics factors, regulations and environmental awareness constantly change the game.
The Wauters house continues on its way. In our family business, with a human dimension, our teams are always highly attentive to brands, respectful of the customer and passionate for detail, to cultivate the project and take it to the highest level. We make no concessions; work, innovation and ingenuity are our watchwords. The people at Wauters are trained and nurtured. And this mindset extends to the close relationship we develop with our customers.
At Wauters, we also fuel our passion for technology. We stay abreast of the latest technical developments, to maintain the aesthetic pace, meet sometimes futuristic challenges or find an alternative to major trends. We constantly seek to complete our range of tools, with a view to enhancing materials, improving quality, and protecting brands. Our only criterion: added value.

FOR OUR 110 YEARS, A DARING EXERCISE IN STYLE!
Ever keen to broaden the realm of creativity and technical possibilities, Wauters welcomes expert partnerships to rethink the finish of packaging.
As with Flock and the contribution of Flock1 last year, this year Wauters is again embarking on a new process with micro-perforation, thanks to Delta Composants, which adds the final touch.
The creative idea
Like a great vintage, Wauters’ expertise is a fine, time-tested blend of human talent and high technology. To embody it, the house designed a festive packaging to inspire customers in the Wine and Spirits or Perfume sectors.
The finished product “110 YEARS – GOLDEN AGE EDITION”
Two gold boxes, one for champagne, the other for perfume, chiselled in a silver film, sparingly covered with gold print and a white decoration in dotted lines.
They are completed with two pure white sleeves, with a fine openwork structure outlining the bottle. The application of gilding or semi-matt varnish adds texture and brings a sparkle of luxury to the design.
/ The distribution of roles
For Wauters: volume design, film coating, printing, gilding, project initiation and follow-up
For Delta Composants: micro-perforation and boring
The Wauters and B-Pack Team
Hot stamping, embossing, varnishing, laminating… These refined finishes are an integral part of luxury packaging.
As experts in hot stamping and high-added-value processing, Wauters has always invested in cutting-edge equipment.
As an icon of French luxury and expertise, Maison Martell needs no introduction. Since its foundation 300 years ago, it has made a name for itself as an authority on cognac.
The solar, divine Alien Goddess, Mugler’s flagship product, has become an essential eau de parfum in the world of perfumery. In keeping with the brand, Wauters has mobilised all its know-how to adorn the box in gold and sunlight.
