The 10 asset tags you receive in the mail are automatically preregistered and tied to your account the instant you order. Asset tags should be applied to smooth plastic and metal surfaces and allowed to cure for 7 days. The asset tags are designed for computers, smart phones, tablets, game systems, TVs, motorized yard equipment, bicycles, etc. Once you clean and dry an area, and adhere the asset tags to your property, you are halfway there. Now apply the 3 permanent warning labels on smooth exterior surfaces and the 4 removable warning window-cling labels on inside glass. Once completed, the deterrent is in full effect.

MyPropertyIDRegistry.com has the additional feature that allows you to log into your account and add further information about your items to the already preregistered asset tag numbers—such as brand, model and serial number. If you decide to hide an asset tag on an individual piece of property, there is even a space to record that secret location. Any updates you make can be emailed or printed as backup for your records.

MyPropertyIDRegistry.com also acts as a lost and found. Most people who find lost property will make an effort to return it if there is an easy way to do so. All a Good Samaritan has to do is go to the FOUND page and enter in the ID number. Additionally, if law enforcement, in the course of their assigned duties, come across a piece of marked property, they too can use the system as a tool to gather evidence against a perpetrator.


MyPropertyIDRegistry.com is a U.S. company based in Des Moines, Iowa. The business taps into the strong Midwestern values Iowans proudly represent. All of the contracting companies are Iowa based. The conception, development, launch and ongoing operation of MyPropertyIDRegistry.com depends on Iowa businesses. All of the people involved contributed their hard work, dedication, integrity and thoughtfulness to this project. MyPropertyIDRegistry.com thanks them and is proud to be a part of a great tradition. Made in the U.S.A.


Jon Shelness has lived in central Iowa for 27 years. He grew up in the rural outskirts of New York City in Lewisboro, New York, and graduated from high school in Davis, California. Upon graduation, he took a cross-country road trip that included Bloomfield and Ottumwa, Iowa. He moved permanently to central Iowa from New York in 1990, embracing Iowa, its people and its values. During his years in Iowa, he has lived on farm acreages, in small towns, and now in Des Moines. He’s even “pulled” a calf.

Jon initially worked in the printing industry, and as a photographer and writer. In later years, he received his bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University in order to continue a 15-year career working with at-risk youth and juvenile offenders. In 2013, he was recognized by the Iowa chapter of the National Association of Social Workers for his innovative work with delinquent youth.

As Jon continued his education through graduate classes in criminal justice and public administration, a number of lessons stuck with him which took him in a new direction. Jon’s family, friends, career, education and volunteerism—combined with his desire to contribute to society in a meaningful way—is the inspiration that has led to the development of MyPropertyIDRegistry.com.
