Ladder shroud and blackout lining
A number of cord shroud techniques for shades have been available for nearly a year now, and we use whichever one is most appropriate for the fabric and shade style.
Ladder shroud is very useful with blackout lined shades because it's possible to apply little blackout "bandaids" to very effectively block light that wants to peek through the holes left from the needle where the rings are sewn.
I have discovered that the "bandaids" are applied most easily with a hot glue gun. They're cut about 1/4" wide by about 1" long. They don't get in the way of the cord as the shade is raised.
