Want to redirect IP on 1 site to another internal ip

We're moving offices, but not moving the old IP range yet. We have 20+ staff with printing configured to a single IP address on the old/existing IP range. We're going to physically move the printers and staff, but I'd like to save some time going to each workstation and resetting the printer IP just for the next 2 weeks until we shift the new IP range.
The old and new sites are connected by BOVPN, so both IP ranges are accessible.
reference: old printer IP, as configured for users: (network is /24)
New printer ip: (network is /24)

What I'd like to do:
Map all requests for to go to

Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks... or tell me I'm just crazy.

    The only way I can think to do this would be via static NAT, which wont work because the firewall will attempt to bind that network to itself (which it can't because it's an ipsec VPN route.)

    The cleanest thing I can think of would be to just have your customers run a powershell script or similar to change that for them, or just have them add a new printer.
