Question t shirt maker

I want to start a small business at home with making custom designed t shirt prints.

I know there are iron on t shirt paper to use but i want to make something alittle more professional like store bought.

I don't know how the pros do it but i want to learn, are there any good books or videos?

I am interested in the vintage look,where the whites are not bright and new looking and are a little faded from "age".

I don't want the iron on look of a picture in a square on the front of a shirt.

I believe the pro's do it by silk screen method.

I have been at sporting events where T-shirt vendors were. You had a choice of stencil. They had a flat iron that looked like George Foreman griddle. Opened up the top, placed the T shirt flat and stencil on top, lowered the lid for a moment, and...a great T shirt.

Hmmm a stencil might hold up better than a silk screen.

I wonder where i could get those to make my own custom ones.

If you Google the right wording or terminology I think you'll get tons of reading material.
