To truly learn about us, knowing the meaning behind SIGNUMX is everything. SIGNUMX is our take on the Latin phrase: Signum Crucis; better known as the Sign of the Cross. The X was adopted to represent both a cross and sword, reminding us of the strength we find in our faith when in the midst of spiritual warfare.
In 2017, SIGNUMX was born out of San Diego by a Catholic guy who wanted to shake things up. There aren’t really any brands in the Catholic world that are stylized like Volcom, Billabong, Dark Seas Division, etc. and we sought to fill that void. We seek to produce a lifestyle brand where people could join a movement to bring others to Christ through a subtle, SoCal way. It all starts with, “What does SIGNUMX mean?” and then the rest is up to you to become that fisher of men.
My name is Zach Blodgett, my beautiful family lives in sunny San Diego, I’m a Saints alumni and love scouring Youtube for old Fulton Sheen videos.
Like most people my age, I grew up with plenty of unhealthy addictions, like video games, and also had a very lukewarm faith. You would think that 12 years of Catholic schooling would have prepared me better, but nothing is a match for the power of high-school bad decisions. After a deep personal realization that I needed Christ at the center of my life, I now treasure my rich Catholic faith and I am doing everything in my power to win souls over for our King.
Some of the best suggestions I’ve learned over the years have been: Delete personal social media, avoid the computer as much as possible, get married young, have as many children as God gives you, go to Reconciliation often and never stop going to Mass.
SIGNUMX Patron Saint
Saint Maximillian Mary Kolbe of Poland is a man that I learned about in 2016 but fell in love with his character, mission, and legacy. He was a pioneer with media and evangelized countless people through his devotion to our Mother and fearlessness of persecution. “When you kneel before an altar, do it in such a way that others may be able to recognize that you know before whom you kneel.” To learn more about this brave man, we’ve dedicated this page to him, but please also visit his dedication website here.
