It'll be fine, it's a small static load compared to much higher dynamic loads that occur when riding. It won't affect the seals as the load will be through the bushings, not the seals. If you have floor space then you can buy something like Bikestow (if you are in UK, not sure if the ship worldwide), or something similar. If you are really worried then hang them by the rear wheel, but it's really not an issue.

Thanx mate

Just lower your hook so the rear wheel is resting on the floor. That way you can preserve your floor space, the bike won't fall over, and you won't have the entire weight of the bike... hanging still.
This was my thinking to modify the setup

Hanging them vertically is actually good for the fork. Doddy from GMBN tech hangs all his bikes vertically. It allows all the oil, that usually rests at the bottom of the fork, to lubricate the bushings and seals on the uppers.
