Grunge Wood

 Mother-Daughter duo

ZTC is ran by Jamie Ward & her daughter, Julia. 


Jamie is a self-taught maker who is constantly researching new methods of painting, woodworking, and sign making. Jamie runs on Mountain Dew & Pizza Rolls (Not sponsored, but we wish). 

Julia is a recent Graphic Communications graduate from UW-Stout & loves designing new signs, marketing our products, and snuggling with her cats. (Follow them on insta: koda_ilene).​

We started ZTC in 2016 after getting many requests to make signs for our family, friends, & local community. For the first 6-8 months, we focused on custom orders and perfecting our craft. In 2017, we decided to host our first paint party with our neighborhood, AND WE LOVED IT! We've been hosting parties around the Twin Cities and Brainerd lakes area ever since.


Our passion is creating new and custom signs, and getting people together to celebrate. We love gathering people together for community benefits, hosting surprise parties, celebrating a new bride, or just because! Whatever occasion, we're ready to party!

You can bring in drinks and food. They also have an adorable dog! Highly recommend having a party with them! They even had some cute decorations put up for the bride to be."

"They did a benefit for me at ZBG that a good friend hosted. We all had so much fun and our signs turned out great! They were very helpful and had a lot of different options to choose from! Can’t wait to do it again!"
