Look at the packaging the shirt is sold in - and try to copy the folding/packing technique with possibly a wider backing board if your bag allows room. Pack the shirt in your bag so that it can't move around. Shirts packed this way in suit-case sized bags can travel thousands of miles and still look good on arrival. Will be more difficult with a back-pack sized bag, less so with larger panniers.
If you need any better result, maybe buy a small travel iron and iron them at work. Can be done on any table/desk with a suitable blanket or similar mat rolled out under it.
Ironing a shirt should only add a few minutes to your commute (i.e. two traffic light changes !), particularly if you heat the iron while showering.
This is the way to go. It's pretty much what I do, works a treat. Iron your long sleeved business shirt, then do up all the buttons, except the top one. Get a small-ish square piece of cardboard and fold the shirt around it like they do in the shop (or I use my dad's old RAAF technique for folding shirts, it's very similar). Once folded around the cardboard, do up the top button(I just find it easier to do it once it's folded), slide it in your bag, and you'll find it's still respectable when you arrive at work.
