Shanghai Airlines

Received From: Christoph Vogel
Print or Image Color: Blue and Green
Background / Bag Color: White
This airline probably held a logo contest that was won by the CEO's 4 year old child, who submitted a blue oval with a scribble in it. Instructions to pilot: When you get to the top of the bag, take a HARD LEFT!

Update: Barf Bag authority (or at least Chinese authority), YL Tan, says, "The words on this bag are:
Shanghai Airlines
Vomitting and discarding of fruit peels etc. use
Shanghai Airline Company

The logo is perfectly understandable to the average Chinese; it depicts a stylised imperial crane flying across a blue sky. So please don't diss foreign barfbags you don't understand, OK? :)

Cool maroon on white art deco bag with abstract particle physics-like diagrams on it.

The color of the soaring doves gives you the feeling that you're looking at a CGA screen.

Shanghai Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2010
Received From: Marcus Johns
Print or Image Color: Red, Pink, Black, Gray
Background / Bag Color: White
Shanghai joined the Star Alliance, an oppressive organization that requires all members to change their barf bags in order to mention that they now belong.

Same as prior bags except they changed the tear strip mechanism.

Shanghai Airport Bus

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Background / Bag Color: White
Wow, what an amazing bag! The first thing you notice about this bag is all the people hanging around waiting for their bus, I guess. All the guys are checking out the mermaid, and why not? When was the last time you saw a mermaid on a bus in China? Now you'll see that the people are suspended from the ceiling on what appear to be airplanes, but inexplicably, each plane is labelled "bus". A winner bag.

Note: Such attention to detail has been paid by designers to this bag, that the people on the front are resting on different colored orbs when they appear on the back.

Shenzhen Airlines

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Shenzhen apparently stole its logo from the pages of a geometry book. You know, the section where they show you how a parabola is really just a slice of a conic section.

Shenzhen keeps the boomerang logo, but corporatizes the bag into modernity.

Shenzhen Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2006
Received From: Matthias Koch
Print or Image Color: Navy, White
Background / Bag Color: White, Navy
Shenzhen keeps the boomerang logo, but now calls themselves "Shenzhen Airlines Co. Ltd" which means I guess they finally incorporated.

The colors on this bag are so light, there is little contrast left to enjoy the artistic swaths that grace it.

Shenzhen Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 1996

Background / Bag Color: White
Much like the other Shenzhen bags, but this one has a 90s yellow tab closing mechanism.

Shenzhen Airlines

Pretty average bag that they use lots of red ink to produce (literally, not figuratively)

Shenzhen Airlines

This sure looks like a feminine hygiene bag, but the instructions clearly say it may be used for airsickness, so I will go with that.

Almost identical to the 2010 model except that the name of the airline in English is much smaller than it was. It's now the same size as the Chinese.

Shenzhen Ferry

Approximate Vintage: 2008
Received From: Jan Jendrzejek
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White, Blue
This bag shows a one-armed person throwing out what is ostensibly a fully used bag. This bag actually has the word Seasickness on it, which is a little unusual.

The bag is almost identical to the 2008 bag except it's a much darker color, plus the solid blue vertical line on the left side of the bag has been eliminated.

Shorouk Air

Print or Image Color: Purple and Orange
Background / Bag Color: White
Did you know that the work 'Shorouk' has no known anagrams?

Sic-Sac

Background / Bag Color: Blue
This bag is from Oklahoma City, OK, but there is no Zip Code! Zip Codes were instituted in 1963, but they weren't ubiquitous until the early 70s. According to the diagrams on back, an empty Sic-Sac looks like a diaper or baggy Speedo. A full one looks like a bag of money. Of course, the front seems to indicate that Santa's Elves might determine that you should get this bag as a Christmas present.

This bag differs from previous offering because it has a Zip Code and on the back, it changes "extremely rough weather" to "extremely rough air", though I can't say why.
