Blend between two spot colors expanding as process!!! - Adobe Illustrator Macintosh

Hi folks, I have two shapes that are blended together (using the blend tool) - each a different spot color - and I need to expand before sending to vendors. But, the problem is, when I expand the blend, it seps out as process - which I can't have. Any insight as to how I can fix this??? Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance... - Joe C....

    Try changing it to a spot color gradient instead. I have never had any luck with spot color blends, they always change to CMYK.

    I don't even know if it's possible for a blend to stay a spot color.

    to succesfully blend two spot color, you need to create a special
    graphic style on both end of the blend. For each you create a
    double-fill color with each spot, starting from 0% to 100% and the
    opposite for the other spot, the top one overprint the other. Then blend
    it.

    Sinc emy englis is not very good, take a look at this simple example
