   gpg -u signer_1 -u signer_2 -u signer_3 --detach-sign file-to-sign

You'll end up with a file-to-sign.sig that contains all three signatures.  When you verify file-to-sign.sig, all three signatures will be checked.

Alternately, you can do the same "multiple signer" trick with regular --sign if you want the data and signatures to be put together into a single file.
