GPG Decrypt errors

hello experts,

new to PGP and GPG, i have cleint that we PGP encrypt and add a signature and we are still getting an "invalid signature " while decrypting
 the finger print ID matches and sent the file Ascii Armor on/off
signed and unsigned still no progress
question can this be decrypted without the signature added? i was told yes and weather we add or don't add the signature should not make a difference the file still should decrypt
please help
