What can I do to cool down a mug after sublimating?

To dip or not to dip, that is the question. Some say that dipping the sublimated mug in warm water stops the sublimation process. However, I have found that it can cause glaze crazing, which are small hairline fractures that don’t necessarily show up until after you have used the mug a few times. The solution I have found is using a small fan that I bought from Amazon. It works great, and I don’t have issues with ghosting or bleeding of my inks.
